Custom Home Process
It is important that we have a comprehensive understanding of both your site and your unique vision before we get started on your dream home. To make sure we’re on the same page when it comes to your build, we start every project with a one hour meeting to discuss the scope and learn more about you, your ideas and requirements.
Once we have worked out what you want to achieve, it’s time to figure out what thatlooks like in reality. Our in-house designers will turn your ideas into drawings, and create detailed floor plans and elevations. Throughout this process, Marco will support you withfeedback and suggestions from a practical builder’s perspective. You will be able tomake changes to your plan until we can provide a design that you are happy with. As an optional service, you can take you through a lifesize walk-through of your unique custom designed home before it is built.
Specifications and selections
To take your new home’s design to the next level, you will need to decide on your specifications. Finalising a full list of fixtures, finishes and fittings at this stage will allow us to provide you with the most accurate quote possible and make sure your home is being designed exactly as you pictured.
Preliminary Building Agreement and Cost design
The Preliminary Building Agreement (PBA) is job specific and will include the preparation of architectural drawings suitable for construction, feature contour survey, site classification report, structural engineering design and a site inspection. If needed we will include town planning R-code checklist and BAL report. After these reports are complete we can provide you with an accurate, fixed price to build prior to signing the contract. After gaining a thorough understanding of your design and specifications, we will work on a cost analysis. At this point, we will make any last-minute changes to suit your budget expectations and eliminate the chance of variation costs during the build, wherever possible.
At the end of this stage, we can give you a detailed summary of the costs and the
timeline of the different activities to be scheduled during the construction.
